Going to college is a major part of life, and the Higher Education Administration EdD from The University of Southern Mississippi can put you in a position to build the university experience into more than just an education. This affordable, fully-online Higher Ed EdD will allow you to learn the skills to cultivate a lasting college experience for generations to come.

The online Higher Education Administration EdD offers you a unique learning experience with synchronous classes. These live, online classes give you the opportunity to meet with your instructor and classmates each week and learn from a community of your peers. Your classes will meet at the same time and same day each week and are typically night classes.

This program offers a capstone project rather than a dissertation, giving future deans, presidents, and directors the opportunity to tackle real-world issues. As a student of the Higher Ed program, you’ll be introduced to a vast array of subjects from the two-year college setting, higher ed leadership, legal issues, and social justice. If you’re looking to make a difference for an entire generation of students, this degree was made for you!
